1600 Broadway Suite 1920 , Denver, CO 80202

I represent victims of wrongdoing in civil actions for money damages. My clients are personal injury victims and in cases of wrongful death cases, the decedents’ families.

My clients are diverse. They range from a profoundly disabled son of Hispanic American farm laborers, a disabled child who was a victim of medical malpractice, and a family whose children and grandchildren were wrongful death victims in a fiery Nebraska trucking accident. Additionally, my clients have included a top level television executive, top level investors, public figures, executives, foreign nationals, and professional athletes.

My cases have included: traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe orthopedic damage, blunt force trauma, and tragically, death.

For the past five years I have been listed as one of the five “Top Lawyers” in personal injury by the leading Denver Magazine, 5280. I am rated as one of the Best Lawyers in America, in personal injury. In 2017 Best Lawyers ranked me as “Lawyer of the Year,” in professional malpractice. Colorado Law Week ranked me as “Barrister’s Best,” in 2017 and as “People’s Choice,” in 2018. These are all peer and client reviewed surveys, not paid membership-type phony credentials. Additionally, I am Board Certified in Civil Trial Law, and a member of the American Board of Trial Advocacy.
